WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2015) - CloudLock, the leading provider of CASB and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service solutions, today announced the company has been selected as a Premier Partner in Dropbox's new Partner Network. CloudLock provides the Cloud Security Fabric for Dropbox Business and Dropbox Enterprise customers, providing organizations with critical cybersecurity capabilities.

CloudLock was one of Dropbox's original Dropbox Business API launch partners in December 2014 and has gained steady market adoption. Several CloudLock customers, including Arizona State University, were featured as speakers at Dropbox's inaugural Dropbox Open Conference, held November 4, 2015 in San Francisco.

"Customer trust is our highest priority, and we are dedicated to providing leading security solutions to our customers," said Patrick Heim, Head of Trust & Security for Dropbox. "We have teamed up with leading security companies that provide our customers the agility to manage modern security risks. These partners balance a relentless focus on security with an exceptional commitment to ease of use."

"Building on the success of one of the original Dropbox Business launch partners, we are proud to be selected as a Dropbox Premier Partner in their newly established Partner Network. Organizations all over the world adopt Dropbox Business for its best in class collaboration capabilities and ease of use," said Gil Zimmermann, CEO and co-founder at CloudLock. "Being a Premier Partner means establishing security as top of mind when moving to the cloud and securing an organization's mission critical assets. This advances our mission to make cloud security a business enabler."

CloudLock pioneered the API-first approach in the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) Market with the patented and award-winning Cloud Security Fabric, the industry's first Cybersecurity-as-a-Service offering for SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, and IDaaS environments, as well as custom and homegrown apps and ISV offerings. CloudLock aggregates the intelligence of existing security systems and enriches this data with the insights of both the CyberLab, CloudLock's security intelligence arm, and the largest peer-driven, community-sourced analysis of cloud applications in the world, reporting on over 91,000 apps and counting.

CloudLock provides visibility and control to guard sensitive data in Dropbox, allowing for fast detection and response to risks such as oversharing, inadvertent exposure and cyberthreats. By alerting the user of suspicious behavior, CloudLock mitigates risk through automated quarantining of response actions when sensitive data is discovered.

"We chose CloudLock as our cybersecurity solution for cloud applications. As a cloud security broker, CloudLock allows us to adopt Dropbox while enforcing regulatory and security compliance, without requiring any agents or proxy gateways to be deployed," said Tina Thorstenson, AVP and CISO at Arizona State University.

Core capabilities of CloudLock's integration with Dropbox include:

Cloud DLP

  • Discovers and protects sensitive information through a highly tunable, policy-driven cloud DLP engine
  • Identifies excessively exposed proprietary sensitive information within Dropbox, such as intellectual property or confidential financial information through customizable policies
  • Delivers immediate value through out of the box policies to surface instances of sensitive information, including HIPAA, PCI, SOX, FERPA and PHI data
  • Quarantines excessively exposed sensitive information through automated, policy-driven response actions

User and Entity Behavioral Analytics (UEBA)

  • Delivers insight into abnormal user activities to identify breaches that would otherwise go undetected, while having zero negative impact on well-behaved end users
  • Analyzes user behavior data across cloud applications, including SaaS, IaaS, PaaS and IDaaS environments for correlated security insights
  • Detects suspicious activity indicative of account compromise, including suspicious logins, such as sessions from geographically disparate areas
